Absolutely not! It should be the women at your wedding you are closest to–usually your mother, Mother-In-Law, close aunts and cousins and girlfriends. No one could have hosted a party for all of the women on my guest list; it would have been huge! 🙂

No – I think the ladies that are important in your life are invited.  And in some cases, if your mom is throwing the shower, usually some of her friends are invited too.  As for your FI’s family, although they live far away, it may be a nice gesture to at least send an invitation.  If you don’t know the people (cousin’s gf’s, etc) then I don’t see a reason for them to be invited.  Hope this helps.  🙂

Ooh! Related question:


I am having a destination wedding — my mom is throwing me a family shower a few days before the wedding down in Mexico, but for my friends, my MOHs (2) want to throw me a shower in DC (where I live). Is it NOT ok to invite non wedding-invitees to this event?
